    I needed a great blueberry muffin recipe to utilize some freshly picked local (central Florida) blueberries which I had frozen a few weeks ago.
    Having grown up in MA, near a Jordan Marsh store, I fondly remember how great their muffins were.
    Although I am not sure if this recipe is the authentic Jordan Marsh blueberry muffin recipe, it is pretty good!

    It’s ingredients are pretty basic, therefore I had all of the ingredients on hand.
    It was easy to put together-no sifting.
    The muffins were perfectly browned after 5 extra minutes of baking-due to the use of frozen berries. They were sweet enough, and moist.
    This recipe made 16 regular sized muffins.

    The muffin mix was pretty thick and cold, so its consistency was more like a dough instead of a batter.
    These muffins didn’t crown, or form a muffin top which was fine with me. That may have been due to the batter consistency, and temperature.
    This time I did not mash any berries, as the recipe suggested, but next time I will.
    Lastly, I believe this recipe would work well as a base for other fruit muffins.

    I would rate this recipe 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

      I grew up in Brookline & W. Newton. I ate “thousands” of these. When I found the (supposed) recipe, I made many batches, adusting and tweaking for my kitchen, oven, etc. Best tips: (1) Never use frozen blueberries. Period. (2) Re-read Tip #1! (3) Wild Maine or NH blueberries yield the best tasting result; HOWEVER, cultivated large blueberries were used by the JM bakery. I have verified this fact. (4) Flour the blueberries before GENTLY folding them in!

    Funny….I have this recipe from Spark.Com and it is “interesting” that the picture in both has a cupcake/muffin paper, but the picture doesn’t. I am waiting for Maine blueberries to be in season and then plan to make a large batch of these. The Jordan Marsh muffins were the best ever!!

    This recipe looks so Yummy. Have not had a blueberry muffin in so many years cannot remember when!

    I used to live on Cape Cod – moved to Hawaii when I was very young. Since I left I have never had a blueberry that is “blue” inside. They are all white. And although tangy there is no blueberry taste.

    Just want to know from you, your readers are the blueberries today back east really blue and taste like blueberries?

    Our memories are eating blueberry muffins, pie etc and our hands tongue lips were actually blue. For most people throughout the country myself included I guess that is just a fond memory,

    Thank you Yankee Magazine brought back lots of memories, as usual. And yes I will keep recipe just in case I ever come across “blue” berries.

    Aloha ~ Janet
